It’s said the best laid plans of­ten go awry, and no more does that hold true than when or­gan­is­ing an in­ter­na­tional photo shoot and in­ter­view with one of the most fa­mous women in the world. De­spite a metic­u­lously planned sched­ule when Stel­lar flew to Ser­ena Williams’s home­town of Palm Beach in Florida last month, things threat­ened to go awry as planes were late; con­nect­ing flights were missed; and a nar­row win­dow of op­por­tu­nity to meet with the ten­nis great be­came in­creas­ingly nar­rower. Then there is the not in­signif­i­cant fact that Williams is heav­ily preg­nant with her first child, and by the time she stepped in front of the cam­era for Stel­lar, she had spent the en­tire day film­ing a cam­paign for Ber­lei. “She had a re­ally long day and hadn’t slept the night be­fore but she was a real trouper,” says writer Jor­dan Baker, who in­ter­viewed Williams for to­day’s cover story. “And for some­one who you would imag­ine to be se­ri­ous and in­tense, she had a ter­rific sense of hu­mour and was sur­pris­ingly funny.”
